Squaw Creek National Wildlife Refuge was established on August 23, 1935.  During the year 2010, the refuge held a number of vents to celebrate this special year.  One of the events was held on October 16 during National Wildlife Refuge Week.

The day began with a free bus tour of the Refuge in the morning.  At noon,  FY 10 refuge volunteers were recognized for their contributions to Squaw Creek and treated to a catered  noon meal. 

The 2010 Volunteer of the Year was awarded to Christine Kline, Kansas City.  She was the key person assisting in our 75th events as well as serving many hours in a large number of refuge projects the past 12 months. 

The highlight of the day was the program in which more than 80 people attended including a number of former Squaw Creek employees and partners.  Guest speakers had the opportunity to give their thoughts and comments of past experiences regarding the refuge.  Attendees were also able to look through scrap books with the history of Squaw Creek from the 1930's to the present.
